Comments on: Surprise Intel $7.7 bln security deal is a gamble Mon, 26 Sep 2016 03:26:00 +0000 hourly 1 By: ZimWolfe Fri, 20 Aug 2010 22:28:30 +0000 Its a very bright move by Intel’s visionaries.

The idea of security, encryption and data flow inside the low level hardware is the future.

Today’s concept is a joke, packets of information are scanned all the time every time data is moved on the pc, its scanned by the firewall when it leaves, the provider scans data passing through its systems such as email.

The beauty of the idea is that chips and systems have a trust relationship. Meaning I trust you if you trust me so if I already scanned the encrypted data there is no need to rescan the data.

So once the packet of information leaves the chip or system it can go directly on a trusted network straight to its source not being slowed down by by hundreds of tollbooths from point a to point b.

Its much more secure with encryption on every packet due to the security builtin and the scanning that already happened.

mcaffee excels in sales and marketing. it pays to get onto newly sold pc’s and the software hounds the owners until they finally buy. mcafee also uses sneaky ‘piggybakc” download deals with outfits like Adobe to get its marketing software onto older pcs and then hounds these owners

so Intel wasted 7 billion and this will add to their woes. They should have bought “Analog devices” but that price is very very very high
